A man aged 30-year-old identified as Frackson Fuleni preying his business as a welder has died after the stationary vehicle he was working on was hit by a lorry this morning at Nthandizi trading center along Balaka- Khwisa tarmac road.

Balaka Police Station Public Relations Officer Sergeant Precious Makuta said Fuleni was killed at around 10:00 hours at Nthandizi trading center within Balaka Township.

According to Sergeant Makuta,  driver of BP 2973 Hino Ranger lorry, Charles Mailosi, 46, was driving the vehicle from the direction of Balaka main market heading Nthandizi trading center along Balaka- Khwisa tarmac road.

Upon arrival at the trading center, he failed to control the vehicle due to overspeeding as its braking system developed a fault.

He then hit the stationary vehicle registration number BY 2545 Scania lorry which was being welded underneath by Fuleni.

Following the impact, the stationary vehicle swerved forward and ran over the welder who sustained severe head injuries and died on the spot while the driver of the cruising vehicle sustained deep cuts on both legs and has been admitted at Balaka District Hospital.

Two pedestrians sustained minor injuries and have been treated as outpatients.

Fuleni hailed from Feleni Village, Traditional Authority Mlauli in Neno District.
